Luxury Gold, curated by Insight Vacations, has added a voluntourism extension in India to its offerings for 2017.
Offered through partners ME to WE, the voluntourism experience allows guests to spend time in a community in rural Rajasthan. Here they will work on building projects and learn about sustainable agriculture practices, traditional crafts and daily life in the hills and farmland of India through the personal stories of the men and women living there.
Accommodation is in the Araveli Cottages and Tented Camp and the itinerary allows for a sunrise yoga session and a nature walk through the hills of the Aravalli mountain range. This new extension supports Luxury Gold’s commitment to sustaining the environments and cultures in which it operates, through the TreadRight Foundation, a joint initiative between The Travel Corporation's family of brands.
Luxury Gold has also added new itineraries, countries, and continents to its portfolio for next year.
Building on the success of its first year of operation, Luxury Gold’s 2017 Worldwide portfolio will now feature 38 escorted journeys delivering private VIP experiences across Europe, the Americas, India, Southeast Asia and Australasia.
Guests will stay in properties renowned for their exceptional quality, style, location and service including the Raffles Grand Hotel d'Angkor in Cambodia, The Langham in Sydney, and The Taj Lake Palace in Udaipur.
A typical itinerary is Classical Sri Lanka from US$2,275 per person, twinshare; this eight-day journey presents the history, cultural highlights and scenic beauty of Sri Lanka. Experiences include staying in luxury in the hills of Nuwara Eliya, where guests can pick their own tea leaves and sample some of the freshest tea possible, and visits to the local markets to meet with stall holders.
John Boulding, Global CEO of Luxury Gold, said, “To travel with Luxury Gold is to travel beyond the ordinary. From the breathtaking five-star accommodation, to the personal attention of our travelling concierges and the truly immersive, VIP behind-the-scenes access that you won’t get with any other tour operator, we have thought of every last detail."
